Quick Tips

  • Eat this first: Sweet corn, cilantro, and tomatoes. 
  • How to store fresh cilantro: Store upright in a cup or jar with water, like cut flowers. Keep the top covered by placing a plastic bag over them and sealing it against the base of the jar. Keep the jar in sight so that it doesn't get knocked over or go to waste.
  • Hot Peppers: Please note that this heat guide is a rough guide - peppers can vary in heat! When cooking with peppers, always remember to protect your skin and eyes. Start with a little - you can always add more heat, but it's hard to take it out! Check out this pepper guide for help.
